About Maria del Carmen

I am very passionate about dogs and have always been around animals since I was born. While I was in university I worked in a vet and I also trained and groomed dogs during that period. This is the first time in my life I do not have a doggy so I am ready to give yours lots of love, cuddles and kisses as well as lots of attention and exercise!. I live with my husband and my two small children in a nice spacious terrace house with an enclosed garden, 10 minutes walking from River Side Park and 20 from Southampton Common. I also hold an enhanced DBS Check. While you are away, we can be in touch and we can send you daily photos and videos. If you rather us visit your dog during the day, or give it a walk, please let me know.

    Hoover enjoyed his stay and returned a happy bouncy hound. Carmen kept me informed of how Hoover was doing by sending regular updates and pictures during his stay. I will definitely make use of Carmen’s services again.

    Excellent communication, lovely, warm person, and clearly excellent with dogs. Carmen has previously cared for rescue dogs and thanks to her calm manner and clear confidence she had no trouble at all making Cody (and Harley) at home. Despite Cody's history we were confident he would be okay, and he was. The dogs even slept when we were away. I'm only sad that I live 3 1/2 hours away from Carmen so I won't be using her regularly! (This was a holiday for us with one day where we couldn't take the dogs). Her children are clearly being brought up to be confident and appropriate around dogs too. Fantastic experience, many, many thanks, Carmen!

    We are also really sorry you live so far away from us. It was an absolute pleasure to have the boys with us. They are well behaved and lovely dogs.

    Carmen and her family cared for my young puppy beautifully. He was very excited to see her and she made his time with the whole family very safe and fun. I would recommend Carmen without hesitation.

    We are going to miss Dudley a lot, especially my son, who found in him the perfect companion.
